As seen in the article, this Morton Grove motorcycle accident involved a “head-on collision” between the motorcycle and vehicle. These types of collisions are typical when a vehicle attempts to make a left-hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. As discussed on the “‘Head-On Collisions’ Involving Motorcycles” page, there are many reasons as to why these collisions often lead to serious, if not life-threatening accident injuries to the motorcycle rider, and if applicable, passenger.
Due to the severity of injuries resulting from such crashes, riders who survive such crashes often seek to get compensation for their accident injuries. Due to the severity of such injuries, extensive hospitalization is often involved, which typically involves emergency care, extensive testing, possible surgeries, and possibly a protracted hospital stay. There are also other forms of care needed, such as various types of rehabilitation. Given this level of medical care, medical bills are likely to be high, even for those who have good insurance. A personal injury lawsuit can seek to get compensation for these medical bills, as well as types of compensation for other harm and financial adversity that has occurred.

If the motorcycle accident was the fault of another person or entity, and it resulted in the death of motorcyclist or motorcycle passenger, relevant parties may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Those types of lawsuits are further discussed on the “Wrongful Death Lawsuits” page.
